Your Impact in 2019-20

Published 29 Jul 2020 

The 2019-20 financial year was a big year for Bush Heritage Australia. Here's a look back at some of the year's conservation milestones made possible by YOU, our supporters.

Your Impact in 2019-20

Thanks to you we now protect 11.3 million hectares across Australia. And 6,700 native species, including 226 threatened species. We've worked on 65 science projects with 49 universities and research organisations. We have 25 partnerships with Aboriginal people. And our work is contributing to 8 Sustainable Development Goals.

April-May 2019: Adventurous volunteers helped control weeds and stabilise banks on the Murrumbidgee River.

May 2019: Critically endangered Plains Wanderers were sighted at Boolcoomatta Reserve, SA.

July 2019: We launched a partnership supporting the work of the Karajarri Rangers.

August 2019: Thousands of seedlings were planted as part of our Climate Ready project at Nardoo Hills VIC.

September 2019: Our biggest ever revegetation project at Eurardy Reserve WA, in partnership with Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund.

November 2019:  We adopted the 'right-way' science approach to help foster respect and recognition of Aboriginal cultures and knowledge in all aspects of our work.

November 2019 - ongoing: We began assessing the damage and recovering from Australia's worst ever fire season.

Feb 2020: A welcome visitor at Scottsdale Reserve was spotted feeding on a fire-affected eucalypt after a bushfire.

March 2020: We started a 12-month native bluegrass harvesting trial on Carnarvon Reserve, QLD.

None of this would have been possible without your support. Thank you.
